The Warriors fell to 9-15 overall and 2-4 in the MAC Freedom, as it sits in a tie for sixth in conference play with two matches left, including a key matchup at fifth-place King’s on Tuesday at 7 p.m., as the top five in the league qualify for the conference championship, which starts on Monday, Nov. 1. First-year Brynne Bisel notched six kills and five digs and first-year Jessica Ahart also added six kills. First-year Sydney Guethlein added three kills and two blocks. First-year Piper Schwenk posted 20 assists. The Warriors forced 19 ties and seven lead changes in the three sets, with the Ducks (20-3, 6-0) using a 9-3 run late in the first set to break a tie at 16. The Ducks led 18-12 in the second set, but Lycoming closed within two points at 23-21 before the Ducks scored the last two points. In the third set, the Ducks took a 7-2 lead, but the Warriors fought back to tie it at eight and were tied as late as 17-17 before the Ducks were able to gain some separation.
